The Editorial Staff are sorry, but we don't care who you are.

This is tres amusing:

Four former employees of the National Association of Professional Women, a women’s networking group, have sued the organization and three of its executives, claiming that a manager had sexually harassed them and that their paychecks had been docked in violation of New York State labor law.

In a complaint filed in Federal District Court in Central Islip, N.Y., on Sept. 25, the four — Lisa DeLisi, Crystal Alexander, Monique McCabe and Anika Cosbert — said that their former manager, Krissy L. DeMonte, had regularly pinched and grabbed their buttocks and called them vulgar names. After they complained, they said, they were fired or forced to resign because of intolerable working conditions.

In a separate lawsuit filed in New York State court in Nassau County in January, Rose Costantino, another former association employee, said that Ms. DeMonte had approached her from behind on many occasions as she sat at her desk and grabbed, squeezed or rubbed her neck and then dropped her hands “to touch, rub and/or feel the top” of her breasts.

In a written statement on Tuesday, the association called the allegations “completely unfounded,” adding that four of the five plaintiffs had been terminated for documented deficiencies in performance and violations of policies and procedures. One plaintiff herself, the association said, had exhibited “a pattern of inappropriate and unprofessional conduct.”

The association went on to say that an independent investigation unearthed no evidence to corroborate “the ridiculous allegations” against Ms. DeMonte.”

The sad thing is that we tend to believe the accused.

This is what happens when well intentioned nitwits think the answer to every human problem that has ever existed is to make it easier for people to sue each other.

Oh, they're hookers.
Got it.
REALLY don't understand the lawsuit now.

No, that's the National Association of Professional Women, not the National Association of Professional Women. Totally different groups.

They're both big donors, though. Love those gals!

Are they unionized? Cause if not now, when they do, the inflated costs won't even be able stand up to low expectations.
Would that make the pimp the "Shop Boss"?

I have to say, no one has EVER pinched my butt without a pretty strong indication from me that it was OK. I think a good response would be to suffer a sudden involuntary spasm that led to my elbow slamming into the offender's nose. "I'm so sorry! You startled me! Are you OK? I thought an animal had bitten me."

"How about a National Association of Unprofessional Women?"

Now there's a cause I would pause for.

It ain't sexual harassment if you haven't had the training.

It ain't sexual harassment if you haven't had the training.

Exactly :p

How can one expect to be good at anything without continual practice?

I once took in to a gov't mandated sexual harrassment class my door hanger sign that said, "Sexual harrassment will not be tolerated ...it will, however, be graded."
The instructor didn't appreciate my humor for some reason.
I'm thinkin' he didn't like the competition.
